Qualcomm recently announced a series of new chipsets for mobile phones and other devices. Most notably, it has a new line of HSPA+ chips for next-generation wireless networks and high-end phones. These chips include Bluetooth, GPS and FM radios, and have the ability to support speeds of up to 42Mbps on 3G networks worldwide. In addition to the radios, these new chips can also support 3D/2D graphics; 16 megapixel cameras; full 1080p HD video playback and recording; DTS/Dolby 5.1 surround sound; assisted-GPS, and 24-bit WXGA (1280 x 800) displays. Qualcomm also introduced a line of chips for less expensive phones. These chips support HSDPA/HSUPA 3G networks via the Android, Symbian S60, Windows Mobile and BREW Mobile platforms. On those platforms the chips can power 8 megapixel cameras, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, and 30 fps WVGA video. The chips will sample later this year.
